Alterations: 2018 UCLA Art History Graduate Symposium
In parks and other public areas, paths caused by erosion and foot traffic form alternate routes and shortcuts, defying preplanned routes such as sidewalks and roads. What are the consequences of such alterations? And how do these modifications function as objects or images? At this symposium, emerging scholars across disciplines address the history and aesthetics of public alterations of surfaces, structures, subjects, and systems as they relate to art and art history.
Multidisciplinary artist Juliana Huxtable is this year’s keynote speaker at 7pm. A 6pm coffee and tea reception precedes the program.
The second day of the symposium will occur at the Hammer Museum from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Complete schedule below and additional details can be found here.
Generously co-sponsored by the UCLA Department of Art History and UCLA Design Media Arts, with support from the UCLA GSA
